Media Screens and Violence

This is a great 6 minute vid that tidily explains the how broadcast television acts to normalize white male violence and power. Suggesting this is simply a cheap and convenient way to market to a global audience.

“Addressing specifically the question of violence and the media, The Killing Screens urges us to think about the effects of the media in new and complex ways. In contrast to the relatively simplistic behaviorist model that media violence causes real-world violence, Gerbner encourages us to think about the psychological, political, social and developmental impacts of growing up and living within a cultural environment of pervasive, ritualized violent images.”
